While writing this book I had only one aim before me, I wanted to make available to all knowledge regarding Yog, which I have acquired by practising it myself. Yog is not meant for a group of specialists, it is for the benefit of all irrespective of age, caste, creed, religion, nationality and sex. Every individual can benefit from the practice of Yog.

In this book, out of the eight components of Yog I have dealt with only four namely, Yam, Niyam, Asan and Pranayam. You cannot fully benefit by just reading, thinking or understanding the facts given here in what is needed is regular practice of the four components. So do not only read the book, practice what has been described and you will not only benefit physically but also mentally. It will change your life style and attitude towards life. You will digest better and enjoy the true taste of food. Yog will make your body shapely and graceful. Your mind will be free of tension and your outlook will become cheerful. As a result you will remain youthful, energetic and healthy all your life. It will ensure success in whatever you do.

The poet Vrinda has stressed the importance of regular practice of Yog in one of his verses: By constant study the ignorant becomes learned just as constant friction causes a dent even on a hard stone. He wrote this when he saw some women drawing water from a well. The stone on the wall of the well had developed a dent because of the constant friction of the rope. So remember practice makes perfect.

An important thing to bear in mind about Yog is that the practice of Asans should be gradual. Begin by practising one Asan only until you have mastered it. If you try to many at one time you will not master any, on the contrary you may harm yourself. Therefore by patient and regular, beginning with only one asan.

I am confident this book will prove useful to you by making you healthy, youthful and active in body and cheerful in mind.

About the Author

The Author of this book Shri Rameshwar Dass Gupta was born in Narela on the 16th of April 1923. He came into close contact of Acharya Bhagwan Dev at the tender age of eleven. He started to practice Yog under his guidance and was also interested in the welfare of society.

In the beginning Shri Gupta did some asans like Padm Asan, Baddha-Padm Asan, Chakr Asan, Shirsh Asan, Tad Asan etc. and later on practised meditation.

One day while meditating he felt although he was being lifted up into the air where he experience a great bliss in roaming around beautiful gardens.

In 1936-37 he started business. For 40 years he was continuously in business and discharging his family obligations. But throughout he maintained strict discipline regarding his life-style and food-habits along with that he kept up his practice of Yogasans.

After 1973 the responsibility of business lessened which gave him more time for the practice of Yog. He now started to spend three to four hours everyday for Yog-Sadhana.

In 1980 he wrote Yog Rashmi and then as he went on perfecting the practice of Yog he wrote five more books namely Yog Chentna, Yog Pravesh, Yog Jiwan, Dainik Yog and Motapa Aur Budhapa. On demand of many readers all these books were published in English also Yog Rashmi was translated into Marathi and Urdu as Well.

This undertaking was taken up by the author for the physical and mental well-being of humanity. Just as the elements of sunlight air and water do not differentiate between human beings so do these books which are meant for every irrespective of caste, creed or religion, age or sex.

The writer wishes that the books should help everyone.
